Big Gay Ice Cream Shop - New York, NY

Their famous Salty Pimp = "vanilla, dulce de leche, sea salt, choco dip"
Big Gay Ice Cream Shop
125 East 7th Street
(1st Avenue & Avenue A)
New York, NY 10009
(212) 533-9333
Visited Saturday, 2/25/12 after our conference in Philly.

DELICIOUS...and the employees were friendly! It was just as awesome as I had expected it would be after seeing them on The Food Network! It would have been cool to visit their ice cream truck, but their truck is "in the garage until Spring 2012," as their website says, and this place was cool too. They have interesting treats like the Mexican Affo'gay'to cool toppings like these:

» Olive Oil & Sea Salt
» Toasted Curried Coconut
» Trix Cereal
» Cayenne Pepper
» Wasabi Pea Dust
» Crushed Nilla Wafers
» Fresh Berries & Saba
» Pumpkin Butter
» Dulce de Leche
» Nutella
» Ginger Syrup
» Cardamom
» Peppermint Syrup & Cocao Nibs
» Elderflower Syrup

I wanna try everything on this menu!

Salting up the Salty Pimp!
I loved my American Globs (see below) with the pretzels, chocolate, and sea salt, but I think the Salty Pimp was amazing too. I'm going to recreate both someday.

Inside the pretzel

Pretzels at the bottom (I think this should have been chocolate or caramel or something 'cause this was a dry ending)
